This weekend just gone I attended the 2nd ever Assembly Rooms in Brighton. http://www.theassemblyroombrighton.co.uk/
A place to discover The best Creative talent Brighton has to offer...even if I do say so myself!
Margin friends, Ridley & Dowse organise the get together and it's always really well curated and bursting with people. This time it was extra special because it was part of the Brighton Fringe Festival, and outside was a graffiti artist spraying cling film and a fire breathing dragon that breathed fire dangerously close to small children's hairlines!... ahhhh
By the way....if you come to one of my market stalls there are Major discount to be had so its worth popping along!
Cardigan ... the visions of Kate Jenkins. She is a very established artist and I first spotted her stuff with Modern Toss in a pop up shop on Brighton's sea front. Basically she Crochets and knits the most amazing things inspired by everyday objects in a very humorous way. Like a packet of cigs called woolborgh and pork pies with crochet pigs spilling out. I urge you to click on my cardigan link and take a look. its inspired! and she's lovely too and kept wanting to buy up my entire collection of AMOR moustache based goods!
Elizer Friker. A fellow UAL graduate she draws these really cute pictures, prints ZINES! and screen prints bags and ts. not only that but she's got a funny stall that has a peep hole that she pokes her head out of ! you should definatly come to a show just to see that! I swapped a t-shirt for the cat collage below! well worth it...not only is it really cute, but it covers up my husband crap DVD selection! 'Old School', 'meet the fockers' 'Ransom' eerrkk. we are doing another Stall at MADE Fair in Tunbridge Wells on Sunday
Alexa De Castilho
If I had a million pounds I'd buy each piece. She hand casts it in Gold and Silver and Bronze and other stuff.... Im so excited by it. She had never sold this collection anywhere else before The Assembly Rooms. I expect big things from this lady shape! Her website is pretty funky too.
